Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Garcia/Gans interview

Here's an actual passage from a Garcia interview with David Gans from several years ago. I think this was a serious question:

David: Do you feel that psychedelics might be a way for the vegetable kingdom to communicate with humans?

Jerry: I like that thought, but I don't know if it's true. The thing is that there's no way to prove this stuff. I would love it if somebody would put the energy into studying the mind and psychedelics to the extent where we could start to talk about these things and somebody could even throw forth a few suggestions as to what might be happening. There's no body of information - we need more research. These are questions that we should be asking, this is the important stuff.

Any thoughts?

I want to know what psychedelics Jerry was on to give that answer, was it vegetable (Shrooms or Peyote perhaps) ar synthesized (LSD etc).....and where do I get some???



To quote the great Frank Zappa:

"Call any vegetable,
Call it by name,
Call it today,
When you get off the train,
Call any vegetable,
And the chances are good......

(Doo doo doo)
That the vegetable will respond to you!!
(Doo, doo-ooh doo doo)
That the vegetable will respond to you!!"

and just to complete the song.......... (with apologies to Patkelly for hijacking your thread0

"Call any vegetable Pick up your phone
Think of a vegetable Lonely at home
Call any vegetable And the chances are good
That a vegetable will respond to you

Rutabayayaga, Rutabayayaga,
Rutabayayaga, Rutabayayaga,
Rutabay-y-y-y...


No one will know
If you don't want to let them know
No one will know
'Less it's you that might tell them so
Call and they'll come to you
Covered with dew
Vegetables dream, Of responding to you

Standing there shiny and proud by your side
Smoking a joint while the neighbors decide
Why is a vegetable something to hide
